Monday, February 18, 2013 - --popped and poured –
-- tasted non-blind over a few hours --
NOSE: strong aromas of fresh green pear and canned Bartlett pears; smells like a white wine that is still going through primary fermentation; interesting chilli powder and orange Pledge notes ---- kind of CA Viognier-esque.
BODY: green-yellow color; medium-light bodied.
TASTE: tropical fruits --- papaya & mango; moderate mineral presence, and a hint of florals on the front palate; a musk note emerges with time in the glass, too; acidity is a touch on the low side, but is nonetheless adequate; 13% alc. can be tasted a bit on the sides of the palate; tastes like a bbl sample; simple-but-good, but not good enough for me to be interested in buying again.
